Giraffe’s Can’t Dance / In phonics we have learnt the ‘ur’ and ‘ow’ sounds.
This week we have been learning about wild animals. As an introduction we read the story Giraffe’s Can’t Dance. We then thought about what the animals are like and have been describing them. Our Class challenge this week has been to write clues, so that the rest of the class can guess which animal they have drawn.
In phonics this week we have learnt the ‘ur’ and ‘ow’ sounds. We also had a focus on the tricky words you and are. The children had slips of paper telling them ‘Can you go to the …..’ and they had to find the picture of the animal they were asked to look for which was hidden somewhere in the classroom.
In maths this week we have continued looking at grouping and sharing. We have also been counting in twos and tens.
